The palace remains in fabulous condition and is one of the most popular attractions of France. With this tour you have the freedom of planning your travel to the palace, be it from Paris or someplace else.
Versailles was the center of French politics from 1682, when Louis XIV, also known as the Sun King moved his court from Paris to the countryside.
